Penn State vs Maryland Wrestling Live Stream

A lot has happened since the PSU wrestling team took the mat to impressively win the blue group at the Collegiate Wrestling duals – not the least of which is that Iowa’s three-time national title winner Spencer Lee is having season ending surgery (wrestling without any ACLs is not sustainable for more that a short while), and so the Hawkeyes are now projected by some to come in second at the NCAA tournament.

That’s right, kids – for the first time since the fall of 2019, prior to PSU’s own bad news that returning NCAA champ Anthony Cassar would not be defending his title, Penn State is now ranked #1! And, on top of that, we’ve got a new 125er inserted into the lineup in the form of world silver medalist (and olympic bronze medalist) Sarah Hildebrandt’s younger brother, Drew Hildebrandt, who is finally eligible after transferring from CMU.

Hildebrandt placed fourth at the NCAA tournament last season, and looks to be bolstering an area of opportunity in Penn State’s lineup – and the rankings still haven’t reflected his entry, since he hasn’t wrestled yet. That should change this week, provided he gets off to the sort of start many are expecting.

This dual has, in the past, been a home away from home dual for PSU – but with snow threatening the DMV region, and more outbreaks of omicron in Maryland being charted, there likely won’t be as many in attendance as in past years. It shouldn’t make much difference, especially if MD’s resident heckler is in attendance.
